‘Brittany Murphy: An ID Mystery’ will cover actress’ mysterious death


Brittany Murphy was one of Hollywood’s tops stars in the 2000s. But her unexpected death sparked theories and now it’s going to be featured in a TV special.

According to reports, a TV special featuring the death of Brittany Murphy is going to air on Investigation Discovery. Titled Brittany Murphy: An ID Mystery, it will be available to watch on May 26 at 9/8c.

Murphy’s cause of death

Brittany Murphy died in 2009 after collapsing in the bathroom of her Los Angeles home. She had been suffering from flu-like symptoms.

Her mother Sharon, who lived with her at that time, was the one who called 911. However, Murphy died in the arms of her mother.

She was just 32 years old at that time. It was later revealed that she died of pneumonia, anemia from severe iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication from over-the-counter and prescription drugs.

The mystery of her death

It would have been simple to say that she died of a natural cause. However, Murphy’s husband, Simon Monjack, also died at their home in 2010.

He took his last breath just five months after Murphy died. The findings of his cause of death then sparked theories and suspicions.

Monjack also died due to pneumonia and anemia. Is it a coincidence or is there something more to the couple’s subsequent deaths?

The Investigation Discovery documentary special is going to delve into the mystery of Murphy’s death once again.

It’s already been a decade since her mysterious death but the special episode will be uncovering answers to several questions that were left behind unanswered.

The plot

The Hollywood actress appeared in hit movies like Clueless, Girl, Interrupted, Just Married, and Riding in Cars with Boys. Because of those credits, she looked like she had it all–beauty, fame, and success.

But as revealed in the network’ synopsis, the rising star had secrets. Many also speculated that a foul play was involved in her death despite autopsy showing a disease as the cause of death.

A bizarre media blitz then emerged around Monjack and Murphy’s mother, which all the more created more questions.

There were even allegations that Monjack died while sleeping beside Sharon. The documentary will feature an exclusive interview with the late Angelo Bertolotti, Brittany’s father.

Before passing away in 2019, Bertolotti revealed that the toxicology report showed that his daughter was deliberately poisoned by heavy metals including antimony and barium.

Brittany Murphy: An ID Mystery will cover more of that information. It will also come with intimate interviews, full access to forensic details, and other explanations for the actress’ cause of death.
